ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg will welcome 12 works by its famous Spanish surrealist namesake never before seen in America.

The Tampa Tribune reports that "The Royal Inheritance: Dalφ works from the Spanish National Collection" exhibit will run Oct. 1 through March 13, 2013.

The works on display come from the National Collection of Modern Art in Spain.

Dali Museum Director Hank Hine said the paintings were in the artist's possession when he died.

The exhibit will feature examples of Dali's technical skill in four paintings from 1918 to 1924 of pristine still lifes and nude studies.

It also will include a pair of paintings that create a three-dimensional experience.
